So check back right here often. Below, Carnifex drummer Shawn Cameron talks about his favorite Slipknot song:

“My favorite Slipknot song would have to be ‘(sic).’ The song is so aggressive and intense. At the time, it was so different from anything I’d ever heard. It made me try and headbang my face off!Β It’s the first song on the self-titled album of theirs I ever listened to back in the spring of 2000. I jammed with this guy once. After jamming, he gave me that CD to listen to, so I took it home and it changed my life! I couldn’t stop listening to it. I went out and bought the Disasterpieces DVD and studied Joey’s every move. Slipknot’s music has heavily influenced the way I play and the way I write. Raw, heavy, and pissed off.”
